Luminosa Music CLG

Luminosa Music CLG was founded in 2018 by Lucy Hayward, Nicola Geddes and Adrian Mantu, in order to form, promote, manage and develop Galway’s first professional string orchestra. The word Luminosa means “brilliant” in Italian, (most musical direction on scores is given in Italian).  This word was chosen because we want to shine a light on the outstanding musicians who join the Luminosa String Orchestra for distinction in performance, organization, innovation and community engagement.  We envisage that the members of our orchestra can now reach their full potential in Galway, without having to re-locate in order to access performance opportunities or develop their professional music career.

We have endeavoured to create an environment of musical excellence, integrity, artistic diversity and trust supported by a company with a robust company structure, a strong organisational and financial acumen, a transparent business ethos and a passion for success.  The community will benefit from our forward-thinking and exemplary orchestra, as it can experience a growing programme by its very own city orchestra. Luminosa Music highlights the wider acceptance, inclusion and celebration of non-Irish born, Irish citizens, and it brings a new element of music education potential to the community.

The orchestra members are a collection of Galway based professional musicians with world-class credentials in performance and teaching, most of whom live or work in Galway. Our programming and curation policy revolves around providing the community with a series of the highest calibre performances of new, contemporary and classical works, showcasing Irish composers wherever possible, and endeavouring to produce something which feels original, avantgarde, new and exciting.
